A Kind of Love In: The story of Julie Driscoll, Brian Auger & the Trinity By Dave Thompson
Paperback: List Price: $9.99 $7.49 | You Save: 25%
Prints in 3-5 business days
It was one of the most memorable hit singles of the late 1960s, an hypnotic, walking bass led swirl through an unreleased Bob Dylan song, that seemingly confirmed in the public eye that the critics... More > had been saying for a year or more. That, in an age already awash with “super groups,” the combination of singer Julie Driscoll with Brian Auger and his Trinity was poised to become the most singularly innovative union of them all. It didn’t work out like that. Today, they're probably best remembered for a sixties hit that was reworked for the theme to TV’s Absolutely Fabulous. But still, the Driscoll-Auger Trinity remains among the most imposing partnerships of the late 1960s. This is their story.< Less
Mrs. Peel, We're Needed By Rodney Marshall et al.

The Avengers was a unique, genre-defying television series which blurred the traditional boundaries between ‘light entertainment’ and disturbing drama. It was a product of the... More > constantly-evolving 1960s yet retains a timeless charm. The monochrome filmed Emma Peel season had established a cult following for a series which became an intrinsic part of the ‘Swinging Sixties’. Backed by US dollars, the show was now filmed ‘in color’ and Avengerland becomes stranger and more playful than ever: Steed is shrunk to the size of a desk pad, forced to evade a machine-gun-toting nanny; Emma Peel is tortured in a medieval ducking stool and turned into a living cybernaut. Mrs. Peel, We’re Needed draws on the knowledge of a broad range of experts and fans of The Avengers as it explores the wonderfully mad Technicolor world of Emma Peel. “The Avengers in pop culture is The Avengers with Diana Rigg and Patrick Macnee, in colour. It is this season that defines the show.” (Piers Johnson)< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Subversive Champagne re-examines the 1960s cult television series, The Avengers, through a close analysis of 25 filmed episodes. The book examines how The Avengers - during the classic Emma Peel era... More > (1964-1967) - was continually shifting the boundaries of audience expectation, defying both genre classification and viewers' traditional desire for kitchen sink drama. Subversive Champagne centres on eighteen episodes from the monochrome Peel Season 4 - widely acknowledged as the artistic pinnacle of the series. It is in this era - caught between video-tape and colour film - that The Avengers was undergoing arguably its most profound stylistic and thematic transitions, from mild eccentricity to something genuinely experimental. The author extends his journey into the exhilarating but 'uneven' colour Season 5, adding chapters on seven more episodes, thus allowing us to explore the entire Emma Peel era. Entertaining froth or groundbreaking art? Rediscover the most iconic show in television history.< Less

Day of Execution By Rodney Marshall et al.
Hardcover: $22.27
Prints in 3-5 business days
Television drama is frequently marginalised as a piece of fleeting popular culture rather than ‘a more lasting art form’. The emergence of television studies has helped to question... More > this mind-set. Innovative television drama can rival any field of the arts in terms of material worthy of critical exploration. This series of books focuses on ‘outstanding’ examples of British television dramas, centring on a single episode in an attempt to explain what makes both the episode in particular, and the series in general, remarkable. The social context, script, characters sets/locations, music, and direction are all focal points. This Classic British Television Drama (CBTD) series of books continues with an exploration of Man in a Suitcase’s episode Day of Execution. Elements of Cold War espionage, American gumshoe, British thriller and ‘Swinging’ London combine in a series which is hard to define and was, arguably, ahead of its time.< Less

More > constantly-evolving 1960s yet retains a timeless charm. At the crossroads between the Cathy Gale-era stricture of video tape and the glossy, surreal, comic-strip world of ‘glorious Technicolor’, the monochrome filmed Emma Peel season represents the artistic pinnacle of a show which was exported around the world and remains the only British television drama to be networked at ‘primetime’ in the USA. Bright Horizons draws on the knowledge of a broad range of experts and fans of The Avengers – including scriptwriter Roger Marshall – offering critical explorations of all twenty-six ‘mini-films’ which made up Season 4, the collective peak of an extraordinary television series.
